NEW YORK: George Clooney’s mom is extremely excited to become a grandma again. Nina Clooney is so excited that she revealed the sexes of her son and wife Amal Clooney’s twins, reports Eonline.
“It will be one of each! Yes, a boy and a girl. That’s what I’ve been told,” George’s mother told Vogue magazine.
“How marvelous!” she added. My husband and I are extremely excited.”
The 39-year-old Lebanese-British human rights lawyer and 55-year-old Hollywood star tied the knot in Venice in 2014.
George is very happy and the couple are taking every possible care, said a friend.
Amal’s clients include former Ukrainian Prime Minister Yulia Tymoshenko and Australian Wikileaks founder Julian Assange.
After her wedding, she threw her legal clout and celebrity behind a series of high-profile cases including Britain’s possible restitution of the Elgin Marbles to Greece.
She defended Al-Jazeera reporter Mohamed Fahmy after he was jailed in Egypt and was part of the legal team for former Maldives President Mohamed Nasheed following his toppling in 2012.
She has also defended the cause of young Yazidi women who were abused by Daesh militants.
Amal was born in Lebanon before her family moved to Britain when she was 3 years old.
Actor, director and producer George was married to actress Talia Balsam from 1989 to 1993, before his role in hit television series “ER” propelled him to international stardom.
The couple dismissed speculation about Amal’s pregnancy in August, and the two were in the spotlight again in December when media claimed they were splitting over George’s supposed opposition to having children.
George had reportedly said kids were not on his list of priorities in 2015, but later clarified that “he and Amal did want to have children but that they were taking their time ... before taking that step.”
